Cod and chorizo pasta

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D Classic flavours together in a light, creamy sauce with pasta. We’ve done it with fresh or frozen cod fillets and both work fine. The whole dish from start to finish takes about 20 minutes. In a hot pan, seal a couple of cod fillets, season them with s&p and pop them […]

Speedy beef stroganoff

This rich, creamy dish is a great way to make steak go a bit further.It’s tasty, quick and if you use low fat creme fraiche in place of sour cream it’s pretty healthy too. The meat is not cooked for long so is best with fillet (although sirloin and rump are both fine too). See […]

A big pot of chilli con carne

[tweetmeme source=”easyteas” only_single=false http://www.URL.com%5D I think the key to a good chilli is time. It’s very quick to put together but does need about an hour on the hob. It’s something I’ll often cook for tomorrow’s tea at the same time as something quick for tonight’s. I think red kidney beans are the work of […]

Korma from scratch

I searched high and low for a good korma recipe as I never found anything in a packet or jar that wasn’t gloopy and too sweet. I’ve worked on this over time as a recipe so it works for me every time. Although I will admit from the start that it’s a bit of a […]

Chicken and veg risotto

A 20-minute tea this, and tastes amazing. Looks like it takes much more effort than it actually does. I think I got the basic method from watching Valentina Harris do it on the telly. It’s simple and a great way to use a really wide range of ingredients as anything goes.

Best bolognese ever in minutes

Best bolognese ever in 12 minutes flat? Well, yes and no. Bit of cheating going on here as this is one of my absolute favourite mid week teas, but it relies on a little bit of weekend work. It’s a case of making a huge pot of the sauce and then freezing it in about […]
